PPM Support Tip: How to integrate non text columns in MSP with PPM workplan?

 

Which columns would come across from MSP to PPM and vice versa? Do only Schedule columns and Actual columns that come over?

Do baselines come over?

If MSP has a column called 'unique_id' or 'wbs'(non-text), can those fields be imported as a non-text column, or do they have to be user_data text fields?

 

From MSP, scheduled as well as Actual columns can be imported. This depends on whether integration mode is MSP Controlled or PPM Controlled or Shared Mode.

No Baseline information is imported from MSP into PPM.

 

The other information from MSP can be imported into PPM. These columns need to be imported as non text columns by using the XML mapping. The mapping can be done between PPM user data columns and Text1-29.  Copy the values from unique_id into any one of Text1..Text29. This is the only way that mapping can be done.

 

Here is the sample mpp

<MSPCustomFieldsMapping>
<Map>
  <PPMField>1</PPMField>
  <MSPField>10</MSPField>
  </Map>
<Map>
  <PPMField>2</PPMField>
  <MSPField>15</MSPField>
  </Map>
<Map>
  <PPMField>3</PPMField>
  <MSPField>18</MSPField>
  </Map>
<Map>
  <PPMField>4</PPMField>
  <MSPField>20</MSPField>
  </Map>
  </MSPCustomFieldsMapping>
